Sleeping up to five in two lovely bedrooms, this attractive cottage is semi detached and is set beside a large pond. To the south of the Isle of Wight sits Yafford, and within this peaceful hamlet lies Pond Cottage, in the grounds of the owner's farmhouse and just a mile from the sea. The cottage is set next to an attractive large pond, and has been converted from an 18th Century barn, retaining much character including exposed beams and trusses, wooden floors and stone walls. The well-equipped kitchen has a dining area, the sitting room is cosy and comfortable and the bedrooms, one double and one twin with an additional folding bed, are set... up in the eaves. There is cycling, walking and birdwatching nearby, or simply relax in the private garden.
Amenities: Electric heating system. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, TV, DVD, library of books/games. Electricity inc. in rent. Bed linen inc. in rent. Travel cot & highchair on request. Off road parking for two cars. Enclosed lawned garden with furniture. One well-behaved dog welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Village shop & pub 1.5 miles. Note: There is a large pond close to the cottage. Note: As the folding bed, travel cot and highchair are shared between both properties, these items are available on a first come, first served basis. Please bring your own bedding and linen for the folding bed and cot.
Region: The Isle of Wight, with its beaches, unspoiled scenery, rich heritage and over 500 miles of award-winning public footpaths is a walker's paradise, or if sailing is your thing, the renowned annual Cowes Week is not to be missed.

There are beaches within easy reach, such as Atherfield or Ventnor, while Blackgang and Shanklin Chine, pretty Brighstone village, the resorts of Sandown or Ryde and indeed most of this terrific Island can be reached in less than an hour by car.

lovely well equipped cottage, nicely decorated and furnished barn conversion. The owners were very welcoming and helpful, but didn't over impose.Nice idyllic location and a good spot from which to explore the whole Island. Would definately return.

Well situated, apparently a little spartan, but in fact very comfortable and well thought out, this cottage had few snags one could think of.
If one were slightly disabled, the internal stairs, and the steps into and out of the bedrooms might have been a bother - but I am slightly disabled, and coped well enough: simply had to be a bit careful.
